Galactica Apologists

 I knew it would happen, and it’s happening, Jonah. Whenever people on the Right love a work of popular culture that is unabashedly Leftist, they try to come up with some theory that makes it not so. Message to BSG fans on the Right: You can love the show, as it is undeniably high-quality goods. What you cannot do is come up with some cockamamie explanation whereby it’s not about how we Americans are the Cylons and the humans are “insurgents” fighting an “imperialist” power. The words “insurgents” and “imperialist” were spoken quite deliberately in the premiere. You have to be a sophist to deny an analogy the producers clearly mean us to draw without any question.
